So it’s been 2 weeks since I started working out at the Gym and increasing my caloric intake to 3200 calories a day. I’ve been going 5 days a week and doing 30min of HIIT cardio twice a week.
Increasing my calories has been really difficult because when I’m under stress or dealing with any sort of depression my appetite really lacks. Thankfully, I started meal prepping so that I always have a nutritious meal on hand.
This week I prepped salmon, sweet potatoes, and a lemon, parsley, garbonzo bean salad. Week before that I prepped chicken breasts, broccoli, and rice.
Drinking my calories has also helped immensely.
Tonight I made a banana orange smoothie with almond milk, oats, whey, maca powder, spinach, and parsley. I made a full blender of it and so I drank three pints.
I’m happy to say that I have gained 2 pounds per week and intend on keeping that up until I reach my 15lb bulking goal. At the rate I’m going it should take close to two months.
Perhaps in the future I will share some progress photos.
Anyway, that’s how my training is going so far!
